Amber Rathbun, CPA, Senior Manager
Amber is a senior manager in Maner Costerisan’s Tax department. She joined the firm in 2014, shortly after graduating from Michigan State University. Prior to joining Maner Costerisan full-time, she had accounting and tax internships in the Lansing area. As part of her daily responsibilities, Amber provides tax support to individuals, nonprofits and for-profit businesses.
As an active member of the firm’s Nonprofit team, Amber appreciates the opportunity to learn continuously. She gives presentations and training to clients and internal staff members and provides tax compliance and consulting support to nonprofit clients so they can focus on achieving their ultimate goal of carrying out their mission.
The public accounting career path appealed to Amber while in college. She did well in her accounting classes, and during her tax courses, she quickly came to the realization that tax compliance is an inevitable area of life. Many people find taxes stressful to deal with, but Amber thrives in helping minimize and alleviate stress for clients. Public accounting allows her to help others while working with numbers and tax forms, which she thoroughly enjoys.
Amber loves working at Maner because it offers a family feel while providing tremendous growth opportunities. The firm’s countless resources and talented team help push her to continue to become the strongest professional she can be. Amber enjoys the work she does and the people she works with daily.
A graduate of Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Accounting and a Master of Science in Accounting, Amber is passionate about music and animals. She enjoys singing, listening to, and playing music and has plenty of scenery nearby for birdwatching and observing other wildlife. Amber and her husband moved from Lansing to southern Georgia in 2021, where they currently reside with their cat, Honey, and two dogs, Franklin and Rio.
Trust your instincts and continue to step out of your comfort zone because that's how you grow and learn. I'm proud to work for a firm that challenges employees and constantly strives to deliver quality products and advisory services.
